Toyota Frame Settlement
The Settlement provides a free Frame Inspection and Replacement Program through which Toyota Dealers will, upon your request and free of charge, inspect the frames on the Subject Vehicles to determine whether your Subject Vehicle’s frame should be replaced. If the frame needs to be replaced because it satisfies the Rust Perforation Standard, replacement of the frame and associated parts (including labor) will be at no cost to you. If the frame does not meet the criteria for frame replacement, under certain circumstances, the Toyota Dealer will apply Corrosion-Resistant Compounds (“CRC”) at no cost to you, pursuant to the Inspection Protocol. You can contact your Toyota Dealer to have your Subject Vehicle inspected as part of this program. The warranty enhanced frame corrosion coverage is offered until the later of 12 years from the date of first use or until July 21, 2019. The settlement also reimburses Class Members who previously paid out-of-pocket for frame replacement due to rust perforation that satisfies the Rust Perforation Standard that were incurred prior to June 8, 2018, and that were not otherwise reimbursed.
If you do nothing, you will remain in the class and will be able to receive the applicable benefits of the settlement, but will not be able to sue Toyota.
You can exclude yourself from the class action by October 22, 2018. If you do so, you will not get any settlement benefits, but you keep the right to sue Toyota about the issues in the lawsuit.
The full length notice describing how to obtain settlement relief or exclude yourself is available on the Court Documents Page of this website.
